How to make a Christmas room spray recipe.  This is an easy recipe made with essential oils and simple ingredients to make your home smell inviting and welcoming for the holiday season.  This holiday room spray recipe is made without vodka or witch hazel.





Christmas Essential Oil Spray


I use essential oils to scent my home naturally.  The December 2021 Simply Earth Essential Oil Recipe Box has a recipe for a Christmas room spray essential oils, so that was the first thing that I made.


This is an easy recipe that's made without vodka or witch hazel.  However, it does have a short shelf life.  That's fine with me because it's a small bottle that I'll use just for the Christmas season.


The Simply Earth Essential Oil Recipe Box is a monthly subscription for essential oils.  Each month, you get 4 full sized bottles of essential oils.   That alone is worth the price of the box!


But you also get supplies to make 6 easy recipes.  All of their recipes are easy, so it's a great box for beginners.  


In the December box, you get:


  



You'll use these supplies plus the supplies from your bonus box that you'll get when you start your subscription to make this holiday room spray recipe, a massage oil, digestive roll on, diffuser blend, macrame ornament, and a tassel diffuser.


What I love about the box is that you get four new oils a month, and they have YouTube videos and information on their blog about those oils.  It's a great way to learn about essential oils a few at a time without overwhelming yourself.

How Do I Make my Own Christmas Spray Recipe?



It's easy to make a DIY Christmas room spray recipe.  You will need to use water, essential oils, and either salt or vodka for a preservative.  We will talk more about the preservative below.





What Essential Oils Make a Christmas Smell?


I used Bay essential oil and Vanilla Woods blend in my Christmas room spray essential oils recipe.  However, you can use your favorite essential oils or blends.


Simply Earth has a Winter Spice blend that I really like for Christmas.  I also really like their Candy Cane blend and Gingerbread blend.

How Long Does Homemade Room Spray Last?


This DIY Christmas room spray will last for 1 to 2 weeks, but it will last longer if you store it in the fridge.  


This Christmas room spray recipe uses salt as a preservative.  To help it last longer, use vodka as a preservative.





Do Room Sprays Need a Preservative?


Since a holiday room spray recipe is mostly water, it will need a preservative.  You can also store it in the fridge to prevent creepy crawlies.


This recipe uses salt as a preservative.  I would recommend only using it for 1-2 weeks.  This is a recipe meant for personal use and is not a recipe for selling.


How Do You Make Essential Oil Spray With Vodka?


Vodka is a great natural preservative to use in a Christmas essential oil spray.  You should use a 120 proof or higher vodka because you need 60 percent or higher alcohol to kill germs in the bottle.  However, I recommend using a 150 proof vodka if possible.


Vodka also acts like a natural solubizer to dissolve the essential oils in the water.  Since this spray is meant for a room and not for the skin, I am not as worried about not having alcohol in my recipe.


How Much Vodka Do You Need for Room Spray?


It's recommended that you use 1/4 alcohol in your recipe.  Since this Christmas room spray recipe uses 1 ounce of water, you would replace 0.25 ounce of water with vodka.





Why Add Salt to Essential Oil Spray?


This this Christmas room spray essential oils is meant for short term use, I opted to use salt as a preservative.  Salt also acts like a natural emulsifier.  


Again, salt is a mild preservative.  This DIY Christmas room spray is still meant for short term use and not for use on the skin.  Use vodka as a preservative for a longer shelf life.
